Legal Issues for Farmers

  • The Beginning Farmer's Intro to Farm Law
    Broadcast date: Monday, December, 8 2014, 12:00 pm CST. Beginning farmers we’ll get a preview of the many legal issues they should consider when just starting out with farming. What business entity should a farmer choose? Which insurance policies are really important? What about that farmland lease- when should it be written down and what should it say? Is there anything to know about farmers market sales, volunteers, or working with family members? This webinar will touch on all of these questions and more. Presented by Rachel Armstrong and Laura Fisher from Farm Commons.
